In the Hallow of his hand

Okay, just for a point of clarification since everyone was flipping out about my lack of ring in my darling 15 week preggo belly pic...NO I am NOT bloating! Took that pic @ the gym and my personal policy is that I never wear my ring at the gym. No particular reason.


Hi guys! Seriously need like a buttload of help because I only have like > than 8 days to come up with the BEST Halloween costume EVER! Want everyone who see's me to say, "Whoa-ly cow! Who's THAT!?!" (in an awesome way, not weird). Also want to receive (minimum) 5-7 respectful whistles throughout the nite. Help!


Requirements: sassy, darling, original, acceptably skanky. Not like GROSS skanky, but a little like "Geez, whoa, cute, I didn't know that was even ALLOWED" kind. Just can't decide! A sexy clown? A spandex-wearing mole-free witch? A cowgirl? A bedazzled nurse? A surfer? A modest french made with tons of values? HELP!

Pregnant nun.

Jane @ What About Mom? said...

Def. the modest french made with tons of values.

Quixotic Healer said...

Sarah Palin of course!!

You too have tunz in common! Your both super cute and sassy. And your both WAY inteligent!

All you need is a brown wig and a power suit!

ramsam said...

I was a french maid with tons of class but sassy-ness one year and it was a HIT.

My husband was out of town, so I took tons of cute pics on my cell phone of me feather dusting pumpkins and stuff, and sent it to him, just to remind him of all the fun times he was missing out on! It was hi-lar-i-usss!!!!

The "Street" Clairs said...

I think a cute housewife in an awesome dress (but way modest) to go along with JJWT dressed up as a doctor/lawyer/dentist so then everyone will see what you will be in a few years and be kind of jealous that they still don't have a plan like you.

Amber said...

Holy cow! Nobody's comments are up yet! Could I really be first? So like, I totally think you should like be like a cheerleader or like something like that. My sister dresses up like a polygamist & puts yarn braids in her hair & has a pregger belly (check!) and the is nursing a baby (doll of course) and has a toddler (bigger doll) on her hip. Way funny but not skanky cuz she doesn't show any skin or look people in the eyes.
So ya...maybe a cheerleader might like be better for like you :)

Marisa said...

I think you should wear your modest bikini and be Malibu Barbie. Sure you might freeze to death, but that's the price you gotta pay to recieve at least 5 respectful wolf calls. And on the skanky scale, a modest bikini on Halloween only ranks a 1. Hope this helps TAMN!

eh5304 said...

What about Dorothy from the wizard of oz. Just think of those cute red heels you get to wear! Very cute!

Dave and Catherine said...

I second the Malibu Barbie.

Holly said...

OMG Tamn- you should totally be a sassy Medusa with tons of cute little rubber snakes poking out- AND THEN your hair can be teased a ton and you can wear mysterious black eyeshadow for the little something extra! And then, since you have a hot bod (even though you're preggers) You can wear little raggity green strips of fabric all across your bod- but only cover the nessesities. BUT DON'T cover your belly! You dont want the babies to miss such a great night by covering them up!

ukyankoz said...

Deffo hot fairy with tiara and tons of bling - like a Disney cartoon, but way hotter!

Olivia Meikle said...

I think you can't ever go wrong with a pirate girl, but like a really cute well groomed one---I mean, it's not like you CHOSE those clothes, the pirates just MADE you wear them, right?

Charity said...

How bout Little Red Riding Hood, and JJWT can be the Big Bad Wolf, licking his chops?

Token Asian Friend said...

You could be Princess Jasmine. Princess Jasmine's outfit is too cute to be ruined by wearing it on top of an undershirt, so have JJWT (Aladdin) wrap his arms around your bare preggo belly all party long.

BYU Athletic Supporter said...

I super-hot JUNO, but not knocked-up before getting married and knowledgeable of the plan, etc. You can involve JJWT, too.

Josh Martin and Marianne Martin said...

You should go as a modest french Maid- or better yet, a modest Jenna Jameson! (with a BUMLOAD of values). Either one would go over really well at the ward Trunk or Treat.

Jeanne said...

You should dress as Micheal Phelps wife if he knew the plan.

April said...

You guys should totally be Fred and Wilma Flinstone.

Then have the feti be pebbles and bam-bam.

This is my first comment P.S. so be proud!

TaeLynn said...

You should definatly go as Bella and Edward!!! SO clever and SO original.

Amy said...

This is SO easy for you TAMN. You were BORN to dress up as our MOST-FAVORITE-EVER fictional character, Bella Swan Cullen in her vampire form!!!!! And of course JJWT will make a PERFECT Edward. I'm thinking a respectably short and tight cream-colored sweaterdress right now and golden contact lenses ...

Kristina P. said...

The economy, AKA Britney Spears. But not Britney when she was all fat and bloated and looked pregnant, but was't pregnant, at the VMAs. Like skinny, I'm naked, but not really naked, in the Womanizer video, Britney.

Sixth Street Preschool said...

I think you should deffo go as Judy Nails (from Guitar Hero)!!! She is hawtt plus then you could show your Victoria Secret magic bra and be all like "um, it's not immodest, it's being true to the character!"

Melissa said...

Taelyn TOTALLY stole my idea! Bella (after she's changed OF COURSE) and Edward... of course, they say that Rose was the REALLY beautiful one... perhaps you should be her and JJWT could be Emmett?

Laura said...

You can go as Julianne Hough on Dancing with the Stars. She is like LDS but b/c she is a dancer gets to wear totally fun outfits and its ok. She is gorgeous and I am sure that you would totally pull off wearing any of the things she gets to wear on that show.

Whitney R said...

Be a sassy librarian. No one would expect that. You could wear super cute glasses and put your hair up in a sexy bun and look all stern. Wear a modest shorter skirt and a tighter modest dress. Maybe even carry around a whip? Oh wait.. no.. that might not work. A ruler and slap desks and tables and stuff.

I mean, that's what I'm going to be

Sarah said...

Go as a hot Stepford wife! You'd look cute and show off what a great wife to JJWT you are!

Carrera / AJ said...

Tinkerbell in her totally appropriately short green dress and glitter ALL over you! You can wear a little tiara, have an excuse to get new SHOES, and go get your hair done, and a pedi too!!

If that doesn't get you some respectful whistles, I don't know what will.

Kristi said...

What about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt? They just had twins (except I'm sure you'll never get as big as she did!!) just like you! And they're both totally hot and richous because they adopt all those babies and stuff. You guys are like the LDS version of them!

SJ said...

I totally feel ya on the whole "wow, I didn't know that was ALLOWED" thing. Just cuz we're trying to be on the plan doesn't mean we have to be groddy, gross, ew. Just remember TAMN-ey, "modest is hottest" so like a hot sexy cat outfit that hugs your body is okay cuz it totally covers everything but still shows what you've got to flaunt. Just don't wear it if you are, y'know, totally fatty.

{Ashley B} said...

For sure a pirate woman. Not the grody, huge cleo, teeth missing, lip licking wench kind. Kiara Knightly version. Super awesome corsett, with tons of modest cleavage and a fake mole cause those can be hot. And forget Orlando. JJWT needs to be Mr Depp in pirate form {except not with the 12 eyes. ewww}

Nicole said...

You should be a school girl and wear totally sassy side ponys and sexy glasses. Of course it would be fine to show you're super sexy preggers midriff cause it's a costume and it's ok to show some skin on halloween. Also, make sure your plad skirt is super short in a modest way. When I did that, all the guys were all over me and my husband was ok cause I was wearing a costoom.

Token Asian Friend said...

TAMN,

The way the pumpkin on your banner squints, it looks like it is making more chocolate for you. ;)

Hello, I am Kristi. said...

Oh my HECK! I totes know what you should be: a BLESSING IN DISGUISE! Cuz, like you totally are a blessing in all are lives!!! So maybe if you just dressed up as some kind of secret agent, or like, a HAWT Carmen Sandiego! But don't wear those glasses/knows combos b/c they totally smell GROSSY. And b/c the feti want to remember their first Halloween in their mommers' HAWT body, not one with weerdy glasses.

Nathaniel and Dorothy said...

Hot eighties rocker in hot pants.

soawesomeimightgetarrested said...

How about modestly sexy little bo peep?

I bought a slutty (can i say that?) little bo peep costume and added some ruffles. It. Is. Freaking (can i say that?) Adorable.

glad I found your blog. I'm new...can you tell?

Im gonna post pics of said costume tonight:)

Kate said...

You should *try* and go as Ruth - it would be the perfect opportunity to show her before and afters... She might get hot after that!

I do have to admit - LUV the Malibu Barbie idea...

amyburb said...

It's really too bad that your baby bump isn't a bit bigger, cause I always thought it would be super fun to dress up as a pregnant sister missionary. It's totally a joke, so no one will get offended. JJWT could be your zone leader! Everyone will totally laugh with you. Plus, even pregnant you'd still be the cutest sister missionary out there and you get the benefit of wearing that name tag I'm sure you had made since you were totally planning on serving a mission.

Gina said...

How about Rosalie Cullen, she is way hotter than all the rest of the vampires and she wants a baby really badly. You could be giving her two babies! I mean feti

A Lipstick-Wearing Accountant said...

a Victoria Secret ANGEL. cute and angelic...shows of the twins (the feti duh! not in a gross way) and is a good way to remind everyone where we come from...heaven, ofcourse!

Rachel said...

Okay TANM, I just had the best idea! You and JJWT can be Adam and EVE!!! It's perfect for you because you can be sexy AND maternal at the same time! I'm picturing some strategically placed leaves, maybe a snake prop. Flowers in your hair. What do you think? This is the best way for you to show off your cute body (AND JJWT'S!) but still help people feel the Spirit, because it's a Bible story, you know? LEt me know what you think!

Lindsay said...

I think you should go as Yvette.

jhjonze said...

I vote for Julianne Hough, Brangelina, that one vampire couple, or Adam and Eve!

clan of the cave hair said...

I can't see you being anybody except Cinderella...I mean, you have the total "Happily Ever After" package going on.

Emily said...

I liked everyone's comments about Malibu Barbie, but I got worried about you getting cold and then getting sick. Being sick and preggo is a downer. No medication-Blah! So here's my suggestion. A mermaid! Then you can still show some skin and wear your modest bikini top or if it's a warm night bust out the fabric shells and double sided tape. You'll be covered from the belly button down, so I'm sure you'll stay warm. Plus, you could crimp your hair or tease it or put it in a fancy up-do. There are some many possibilities with this one! Go for it TAMN!

Skipper said...

You should be a WAY hotter Vanessa Hudgens from HS3, but one who knows The Plan and who wouldn't have posted those naughty pictures. You could wear a cute and tight little outfit, which you could definitely squeeze into with your super skinny tummy!!! JJWT could be Zac of course.

Misty said...

I would def go with Julianne Hough. did you see her as Lucy Ricardo, she was seriously bringing back the red hair. You could pick any sassy little dance number to mimic or maybe rock that cute look she's got going in the juicy fruit comerc.

Mishqueen said...

I think you should dress up like a Goth girl! You can go a touch frilly, a touch rough, more than a touch sexy (the kind that many don't admit they think is hot!), a touch forbidden, a touch of fun; and it would be SO different from your normal self that people would take a minute to figure out it is you! You could wear those tasteful tattoo arms from the Halloween store, and totally can even draw a CTR shield on it if you wanna. Plus, there is fake piercing jewelry out there, and you could have all the piercings we used to wish we had back in 6th grade at our sleepovers, remember that? Man, who knew it could come true someday?

Krissi said...

bikini model. With a body suit of course but tight enough that while everything is covered it is obvious how super cute you are.

Rachel said...

DEF have to go with the Malibu Barbie idea that was introduced up there. Cos I mean, that is SO classy and hott at the same time! Genius!

Or, if you have something against Barbie corrupting girl's values and making their self conscience way bad and causing eating disorders, you should just say you're a beach bum! Or that you're a tanorexic on their way to the tanning salon! OR that you're a pregnant woman in a bikini! There are SO many possibilities.

Lisa and Brian said...

Of course you have to be a Renaissance maiden. Then you HAVE to show the cleavage. It's all part of the costume. Everyone knows that Halloween costumes are just an excuse to show off the hot bod.

shannon said...

i vote for a prego nun...but sex it up just a little bit. and JJWT can be a priest. and you can walk around with a wine glass full of grape juice and some candy cigarettes...but what would the FHE neighbors think???

Erin said...

Oh...I just had the most brilliant idear. You and JJWT should be Troy and Gabriella after they get done with high school and get married! That would be so presh. I would just die TAMN!

Mina said...

I won a contest in college (not long ago) being a 60's Star Trek chick with a big beehive hair-do, black eyeliner and blue shadow and everything. Short dress, black boots, very sexy.

(I only mention that because April totally took my Wilma Flintstone idea. They did have her preggo with Pebbles on the show, so you'd be perfect.)

LUV your new banner.

Afton said...

"Modest French made with tons of values"...

TAMN, you seriously kill me.

Molly Doe said...

Not the french Made. Seriously, you only have to do that one two let boyz noe how good you are at cleaning so they will marry you. You already GOT JJWT. I think either the surfer, so you can ware you're super modest bikini, or a nurse, so JJWT will be reminded how good you'll take care of his babies!

Miranda said...

I think you should dress up like a nun...a pregnant nun

Nancy said...

OM Gosh. I totally nkow. what about Mario and princess peach? then you can have JJWT be a part of your costume, but totally all the others husbands at the ward party will know who you are and wish they had a wife that was so clever and hot. And princess peach can totally rock a modestly low cut neckline and a few slits in the skirt, plus you get to show off your fantastic hair.

georgie said...

a black eyed P...yanno paint a black circle around your eye paint a big ol P on your shirt there ya go a black 'eyed' P may not be sexy but it sure as hell is original

Andrea Jolene said...

Naughty School Teacher...but ya know...naughty righteously.

Super L said...

Wait, wait, wait! I got it TAMN. I think you should be a sexy pioneer! You know, like with the long dress and everyhting, but with like richeus modest cleavage, kinda like those peasent tops. Plus you could get some cool sexy button up boots to go with it.

And then you would even have another chanse to tell everyone about when your car broke down and you had to walk ALL THE WAY HOME! And that way they'd even be reminded of how you are like, totally brave and super-richeus, just your great-great grandma who was like the VERY FIRST ONE to go into the valley, you know?

sue q said...

You should go as "An Insurance Nightmare" and your husband can be "An Accident Waiting to Happen." Just gather up all the leg braces and crutches and neck collars and ace bandages you can get your hands on, wear them ALL at the same time, and FOR SURE you will be the center of attention! My hubby and I did this one year (of course, it was right after I had knee surgery) and it was a huge hit. People totally thought it was for real!

And oh, if you need any of the above mentionned paraphenalia, just holler. I've got thousands of dollars worth of stuff left over from the surgery, and I might as well get my money out of it!

Sadie, Corey and Cailyn said...

Either Sarah Palin cuz she is the most looked at woman right now, and you if you want to be looked at, look like her OR Elizabeth Hasselhoff off the VIEW cuz she too is about to be really looked at when she opens some presidential pep rally with Sarah! That way all you have to chance is the hair color. DON'T FORGET THE GLASSES!!!!!! Major plus.

clan of the cave hair said...

those naughty little Feti on the side bar were just doing something inappropriate!

Alicia said...

I saw a costume at Target for a pirate wench. It very nearly covered everything, but still had a little skankiness to it. It wood be totally presh.

Jessica Nielsen said...

I have a fab idea and I am using it but becuase we are e-bff's I will share it with you! You could be a modest yet toally hot and sexy officer! I am being a "Fashion Police" and I will be handing out fashion violations to the many clueless not so hot halloweiners out there!!

Unstoppable Lindsey said...

Mmm..is a preggo sister mish totally pushing to get struck by lightning??

Spencer + Missy said...

You should be a big oven... and put 2 buns in it!!! Cut it out of a big card board box. Your hubby can be all the ingredients (stick flour, sugar, wheat, etc. all over a shirt and make him wear it!)

Jane Hudd said...

probably you should be pebbles from the flintstones. She's like totally cute & pre-historic with the BEST pony-tail on top. not to mention the most important thing, which is is pebbles is DEFINITELY acceptably skanky.

Chris, Sarah and Zander said...

I like the Adam & Eve idea! Totally churchy & sassy at the same time! Plus it was totally like a commandment for them to multiply & replenish the earth just like you are doing with your totally perfect feti!

Kelley said...

Dooce.

The end.

I win.

Where is my freaking prize.

kaley king. said...

mmmk so you should totally be an indian.
show off your legs in a totally short indian costume that you can make.. since you're so domestic. and totally get to put a headband on your cute precious side bangs that you should have. wear a feather in your hair.
then JJWT is a cowboy. duh.

Kari said...

Okay Tamn, you haveHAVEhave to be a tRoPhY wIfE!!! dRESS up all GOLD AND SPARKLY and stand realllll STILL like a statue and just look todally HAWT and tamnUtiful!

Even though the costume would be SUPER TIGHT, it would todally be modest cause it would cover everything...speshly *rhymes with mipples*...ewwww...

bAHHHHHH...puhlEEEEEze use my idea so we can take pichers together at the WARD HALLOWEEN PARTY and then I can sCrApbLoG ALL about it!!! {{hugs}}

BrendaSue said...

change the song. . . .sick of little David, maybe get the cute, older David's song!

nicole said...

Totally wow, Tamn. I think you should go as Angelina Jolie. You know, she's hot and a mom and just had twins AND has hottie Brad Pitt. You could totally be Angelina, you know, minus the tattoos, plus the plan.

Meg said...

I think you should be Rainbow Brite. No one will think of it so you will be the only one. She has a super cute off the shoulder white, short (but not skanky) dress and blonde pony tails. Plus, you use the YW value colors in your belt so you know you will be an example to your Miamaids. Extra Mile! Also, since it is a children's character it is appropriate for any party.

Barton Family said...

I think you should totally be...

A sexy clown/spw-mf witch/cowgirl/b-nurse/surfer/french made...

JJWT could be a Dr./Dentist/Business owner/Lawyer

And I would totally have my way hot hubby give you an appropriate whistle at the ward trunk or treat..

Win Win...

Wells said...

Bristol Palin!

Amy said...

It just came to me ... Since JJWT is in law/dental/medical/business school, you should dress up as his hot slash sexy slash tempting paralegal/hygenist/nurse/secretary. Very edgy, but hilarious.

Jessica said...

Well you can use my idea because I'll be going to a multi-stake Halloween dance for singles here at BYU (I just transferred last week) and so no one will know that we are secretly twinners!

MISS HAWAIIAN TROPIC!
I'm going to pull out my modest string bikini (strapless? those girls are so ick!) and find my old tiara and sash from when I won back when I was Junior Miss at 14 (has it been four years already?!)

It was really a wonderful pageant experience for me and came at a time in my life when I was just learning the YW value of self-confidence. Thankfully the 'rents hooked me up with a super eighth grade graduation present of: b**b job, nose job, chin job, perma-wax, and lipo. The judges even said I "had a body like a 21-year old sorority girl" which is like the nicest thing ever to say to a freshman in high school!!!

Good luck picking and let us know! I'll definitely let you know!

Emily said...

Get together with your wives club and become the ladies of Wysteria Lane....of course, reserve the "hottest" character for you. The JJWT's can even be the men of Wysteria Lane. I suggest picking outfits based on one of those promo pictures for a sexy, grown-up, yet classy skankiness housewife look! Pefect for TAMNers and JJWT!

Susie Stout said...

Tinker belle and JJWT could be peter pan... for accuracy's sake you have to wear the strapless green dress thing that shows off those skinny legs. That or you could be Rosalie but then JJWT would have to buy you that red sports car.

Rebecca said...

You should totally post a picture of your ring for everyone to see. I bet it is way classy/gorgeous!!

Stephanie said...

if you're Paris Hilton, then you can show her that it's okay to be hott and a Member. Talk about serious missionary work. Not only will you be saving Paris and all her friends, but you'll also be reminding your own friends and neighbors that we are all ChilduvGods, even Paris, and everyone needs to stop hatin her just for being hot. They'll see you and be all like, "oh, wow, we love TAMN so so much, and she's dressed like Paris.... so we love Paris too." Do you see how you could unite the world? And really, you're the only one who could pull it off, even with your super sexy mound.

Dina said...

You need to go as a sexy witch with your tummy bare. THen paint your tummy with 2 little witch faces peeking/tearing out!!! That would be wicked!

Menghinifamily said...

Dress up like an oven. Because you have 'buns in the oven'. Then your hubby can where a cooks hat and go as the baker.

Eva said...

How 'bout a sexy labor and delivery nurse.
You would look sooooo hot in the little white dress and nurse cap. Plus specifying that you're a labor and delivery hot nurse is a little tribute to the feti.

jana said...

TAMN! You should totally be Daphne from Scooby Doo. I was her once and seriously everyone was like - WHOLY COW who's that HAWT girl. LOL

Andrea said...

You should go as I dream of Genie
